Found Woman





Sometime ago I did this background painting with the intent of finding a face, I had it around for a while and one day I saw this figure walking the face was right there as was the hand and the whole dress, I darkened background and drew around patches of color for the flowers. The problem was, I was looking for a larger face. I know some of you are doing this type of art now so thought I would show it. I did show it once before. This time altered for book page and some cropped.

I haven't blogged a lot the last few days, one reason the electronics have been unplugged due to storms. We have lost things before due to lightning strikes, we do live on a small hill so that my be the reason for the strikes. With all this rain it is a comfort to be on a hill. Weather is better today.

I haven't done Mystele's "pulled" art in a while, but I love doing it. Sometimes it takes alot of layers, and other times whatever your looking for, just pops right out in front of you and it takes on a life of its own.

She looks to be a Lady of the Woods, Emelie. She is resting on a hillside, surveying her lovely wildflowers.
It's funny how you can look and look at something and not see. Then you some upon that same something, with no expectations and you see quite clearly.

We too live on a hill, tho small. But it makes it so we don't have to worry when the flooding happens below us. Now if only we could get some rain!
